Young Boy Killed on Sled by Oncoming Traffic

A nine year old boy out enjoying the winter weather was killed Friday.

Jake Eary was sledding with some friends near Chukar and Stillwell streets when he slid down a hill across the street. An oncoming car didn’t see the boy and was unable to stop in time, striking Eary.

He was taken to Nevada Regional where he was declared dead. The driver wasn’t cited, as it was ruled an accident. As a result of this accident, police are urging residents to be extra cautious during the winter months.
